It's Friday y'all and we are all excited to see the weekend has arrived. Is it just us or does it seem that a shortened weekend after a holiday takes longer to get through than a regular week of work?

We could all use something fun to go and do and see and as we do each Friday, we have collected all the info about where you can go see live music, attend a sporting event or go out and support a great cause.

Beauxdines in Lake Charles on Ryan Street has reopened and had live music all weekend.  Friday night they will have Jerad Bridges and Saturday night will be Chris Breaux.  Both artists play from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

K-Bon's on the corner of Hwy. 397 and East McNeese Street in Lake Charles will have Casey Peveto Friday night and Trevor Causey.  Both artists will play from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
